The Lutheran Church–Canada Board of Directors has chosen Edmonton, AB as the host city of the Synodical Convention in 2021. The decision was made at the most recent board meeting, held in Leduc, AB. The venues for the convention will be the Radisson Edmonton South and Delta Edmonton South between Friday, June 11 and Monday, June 14, 2021.

The convention will deal with a number of substantive matters and will include plenary sessions each day as well as eight breakout sessions throughout the day. Pre-event meetings, such as synod board and committees will be organized for Friday to prepare resolutions and reports for plenary sessions. Regional lunches will be held on Sunday so each Region can conduct the business of electing Regional Pastor, Circuit Counsellors, etc.

Edmonton has previously hosted LCC Conventions in 1996 and 2005 and the previous synodical convention was held in 2017 in Kitchener, ON. Further details of the 2021 convention, including theme, agenda, and registration information will be released on an ongoing basis at a convention website to be launched soon.
